When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always.
You've had your time, Right Wing. It's over, and we can see it very clearly. In the wake of the destruction of innocent lives, you promote more violence. You have unmasked the monster and we can see very clearly.
Please do not pretend that all faces are supposed to look like that.
(More ranting on the flip)
You still are promoting the cuts to social security, I notice with despair. You claim that we are screaming about gun control, (An Issue which you consistently manage to block all debate about with the same parroted talking points, mostly about your rights) but continue to destroy every one of our social safety nets whilst doing so. I guess rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are interpreted by you as the rights to ban abortion, submit to the whims of the rich, and feel good about our liberty at the same time.
The Right wing are fricking monsters. It's hideous behavior. Sick, twisted and demented, yet supported by more money that I can imagine seeing in a lifetime. How long can we continue to pretend that we don't smell anything?
Let's play full disclosure here. I am a lot of things that the Right wing and the Left wing BOTH love to attack.
I am a murderer. You don't need to know the details. I consider the event horrible, even though it was justified by the time, place, and manner in which it happened. So, don't tell me that there isn't something WRONG with someone who glorifies killing as "Blasting the Bad Guys" or anything similar. Killing affects people for life. For further reading on this subject, I recommend you read LTC Grossman's treatise.
I'm Gay. Oh not completely, I'm actually a Bi-sexual, but the Right wing would love to take my children for the fact I'm open about the issue. I'm not going to give Free Republic or Redstate a millisecond more time than I took to confirm that one.
I am a gamer. Now here is where we get into the censorship debate. I have problems with types of violence in video games. Specifically the ones that I like to refer to as "Gun Porn" I don't have the problems with the actual violence as in the completely detached manner these games treat it. Respawning... endless waves of faceless badguys, and no consequences whatsoever. Perhaps it's the reason I like RPGs and Strategy games far more then shooters. They require (At least they USED to. Recently I'm having issues) actual thought and planning, as well as a real evaluation of the consequences of actions.
Finally, I'm an occasional Pot Smoker. Occasional as in I burned my medical card on the advice of the VA, and tried their drugs for the PTSD which resulted from my first disclosure. Nothing they have works as well as a good Indica blend. So when the sunsets and cold wind get really bad... I take measures to stop it.
And I'm a damn hippy student living off his G.I. Bill.
So there it is, Right Wing. You can attack me on any or all of those points. I have opened myself up as your target. However, for all of those points, I can't ever recall having the idea that giving money to rich folks at the expense of the poor, being gleefully happy at the concept of shooting a "Bad Guy" in RL, or ensuring that everyone in this country has the opportunity to starve.
Your move. And a song.
